Two thousand years ago in the small village of Bethlehem, a baby boy was born contrary to nature.  Nine months prior to her son’s birth, Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel who revealed something very special.  Out of all the Israelite women from the tribe of Judah, Mary was chosen by God to bear His Son.  Mary was confused by the announcement.  She was currently betrothed to a righteous man named Joseph but was still a virgin.
